Hi Cloud Catcher,
I have been meaning to drop you a line to let you know how the pups are getting on and how much we adore them! They are such lovely dogs and have truly exceeded our expectations. They are growing fast and are so well behaved for pups. They love their walks (we have lots of off leash parks nearby where I can let them romp freely with every confidence in them!) and they have enjoyed trips to the beach and even joined us on our family holiday to Adelaide, where despite my anxiety about driving for 8 hours with the 4 kids and pups, Maggie and Monty were exceptional and could have taught the kids a thing or two about traveling well! Even my dad who was anxious about two puppies ruining his pristine garden during our week long stay was won over by their beautiful temperaments and impeccable behaviour and the fact his garden survived intact!
The kids all adore them and the pups love playing with the kids and are so patient with them as they can get a little boisterous with them at times! For us having two has worked out wonderfully. Maggie and Monty seem to get so much enjoyment out of having a playmate around and spend much time chasing each other and tumbling around the garden, or curled up snoozing together! We have had many compliments on not only what beautiful looking dogs they are but also how obviously well bred they are, so we thank you again for the care you take in breeding your puppies, as they are a real credit to you. (and of course Tala and Mars!). Thank you also for the information you provided on the submissive urination. Maggie still occasionally does it but I can pretty much predict when it will happen, and she has improved greatly.
I think it will gradually disappear. She has really settled down. Monty is happy to go with the flow at home though interestingly finds new situations frightening (like going to the dogwashers), but Maggie though displaying much more confidence all round seems to really need to know exactly what is what – she is so eager to do the right thing I think it stresses her out a bit sometimes! All in all as you say it is not really a problem and we are no longer finding it so.
So thank you again for our wonderful pups! I attach a couple of pictures of the “pack” and the pups
Hi Cloud Catcher and Tribe
Thank you for the birthday wishes. Gem is great and having a lovely day. We will be taking her to the beach later - her favourite place!
We love her more and more every day, she is just the best dog. Even now she is almost grown up the kids still play with her and haven't lost any interest at all. If anything they play more and more and she just completes our family. We couldn't be more thrilled with her and anyone who meets her says what a stunningly gorgeous dog she is. I have tried to get some good pics to send you but she is so funny. When I'm trying to take a picture of her she just bounds up to me for a hug!!! Have attached some anyway, but not the most recent unfortunately as I can't seem to get the new ones fro my mobile onto my pc for some reason.

Hi Cloud Catcher,
Writing to let you know nearly 3 weeks in how we are going. Crate and toilet training afe going well. Tonight we are the 3rd night into Marley sleeping in his crate downstairs with the crate and back door open for him to go out as needed and it has worked a treat.
Tonight is the first night he hasn't cried when we come upstairs to bed. Not sure if that is due to progress on his behalf or because he is tuckered out from his first puppy training class this evening! Marley is both a great talker and socialiser to both man and beast! He has been socialising in all sorts of environments and just loves it. Our son, Callum, and Marley enjoy hanging out together and at night Marley sleeps on the floor by Callum's bed until he is asleep and then goes into his crate for the rest of the night.
All the notes you provided us prior to Marley's arrival have been invaluable and have contributed greatly to the easy transition we have had with him joining our family.
We can't tell you how many times we are stopped in the street by admirers claiming Marley is the best quality Labradoodle they have seen. All kudos to you and your team Cloud Catcher.
We hope you enjoy the photos.
We will continually keep you posted.
Kind Regards, Carolyn
Hi Cloud Catcher, I hope you are well! I am nearly convinced to adopt another Labradoodle puppy (cream this time) My Chloe´ chocolate Labradoodle is nearly 5 months old and she is so gorgeous I love her dearly... I would just like to say to all those people out there who are thinking of or anticipating their very own Labradoodle puppy that your moments with a labradoodle from Cloud Catcher will be filled with so much LOVE and LAUGHTER they are the most affectionate and funniest dogs around! Thank you again Cloud Catcher for being passionate about your love for dogs, you are doing a fabulous job of allocating soul mate puppies to their owners... Love Ann-maree, Chester and Cloud Catcher Chloe´
Our big beautiful boy turns one tomorrow! We had a family birthday BBQ for Rusty on the weekend and I have included some photos. Thank you again for such beautiful dogs. Rusty and Lucee are really enjoying the beach this summer.
Rusty is now swimming in the bay, Lucee goes in but has not started swimming yet (all four paws must touch ground). Rusty and Lucee have brought so much love and joy into our lives.
Thank you again for such gorgeous dogs.
Cheers Ingrid, Lucee and Rusty
I have to tell you,
Maxi is such a good puppy. You have done a tremendous job with raising her. From the first night, she slept through the night, she's not a barker, she "gives"- even with her favorite toys, she calmly sits and she knows where to potty - and it has only been two days! She has captured our hearts and is definitely a part of our family. Thank you so very much for caring about your dogs and taking such good care of them.
We are absolutely delighted with her!
